The entire Two Acres has a view of the lake and mountains and clear view of the Lake Front and 120 foot wharf where everyone gathers - which is safe and easy to touch base with friends and family.

This Bavarian style cabin is unique as it has a balcony that looks out, to the lake and gets morning sunshine starting at 8:30 a.m. The cabin has a 24' TV that swings from the bedroom area to the resting area to view as you wish or have children sit on the settee to watch TV instead of the bedroom.

Outside covered area with firepit and bar has a 12 foot wide, padded bench seat that is used for laying, reading or relaxing during the day and is magical listening to the waves lapping on the shore. From the covered firepit area you can hear the small waterfall from the creek only 15 feet away and as it is a Salmon Enhancement creek with small fry that grow daily under the bridge.

Lakefront was always my dream and this property was enhanced with the creek that winds through the property and makes it even more magical.
The property is parklike with hedges on the water edge for privacy. This is property that is so private everyone that arrives comments on how unique it is. There is a Fern Walk with ponds on the top lot that people love to sit in and read.. many birds, ducks, squirls, owls, otters and mink wander through the area giving it a wilderness feel.

A special thanks for letting my niece and hubby bring their small dog .This property has to one of the best on the whole lake. We will certainly be back next year for our 3 rd year for another great holiday. Thanks again noni b
This is a great set up for large groups, mostly suited to groups with RV's. The hi lite for our family reunion was gathering on the dock at r around the fire at night. It was a famous lay reunion and vacation that we will remember for a long time.
Our family, to include 4 or 5 adults and 6 to 9 children at various times throughout our 8 day stay, enjoyed the cabin and property to its fullest. The grownups put up three tents to accommodate everyone and Grandma and Grandpa took advantage of the comfortable bed in the little cabin.
Along with combing the land for interesting bugs and foliage, the kids spent hours jumping off the dock and swimming to their hearts content. We brought along some blow-up rafts which entertained them for hours as wel.
The outdoor covered kitchen hosted a beautiful four burner gas stovetop and separate BBQ which met all our cooking needs to the nth. The shelves and tables were stocked with every conceivable “thing” you would ever need from pots to bowls to plates to cutlery to coffee makers, micro-wave, toaster, etc. etc. etc. The evenings spent around the fire-pit were made even more special with some pretty cool lighting.
Because of the size of our party, we made the decision to rent the second outdoor toilet facility from Noni and were happy with our decision. One toilet for that many people was simply not enough.
Noni, by the way, is one special lady who eagerly helps wherever she can. She's never too far away if you have questions or concerns or simply want to talk. Her cabin, situated on the property (next to the outdoor kitchen), is only steps away and easily accessible - in more ways than one. She was very patient with the youngest member of our family (6 years old) who seemed drawn up those steps for a quick knock on the door and a little chat!
The only negative aspect to the stay were the numbers of wasps buzzing around the cooking area. Just as soon as the bacon or chicken or steak were being readied for the fire, the little pests appeared. Fortunately, they didn’t seem interested in us while we were eating... or perhaps that’s because we were always sitting around the fire. No one was stung, however, so that was a relief. Nevertheless, I will bring three or four traps with me next time...
All in all, I think it was a special week for all of us and I wouldn’t hesitate to spend another mini vacation there again. Thank you Noni!
Very nice property for camping with friends. Clean and well maintained. Noni checked often with us to be sure we had what we needed. Shower is nice and clean with lots of hot water. Good size dock for enjoying the lake. My favorite spot was the covered firepit area - good for enjoying even rainy days outdoors.
Thank you Noni!
This a great place for fun and relaxation,good spot for large groups or small groups.Noni was extremly helpful for any questions and advice about the lake plus being a great hostess. This place was exactly as advertised. Definitley stay again hope to be back next year. Doug and the boys
Thank you so much to NoniB!! Our group of friends and family had an amazing week at Shady Akres and the owner NoniB couldn't have been a better hostess! Everything you need is supplied, and if there's something you need NoniB will do everything to accommodate you! From young to old, we were all spoilt and will remember our vacation forever! Paradise!
